UC Pride Atop Mount Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro, along with his colleague, Fionnula Lynch
Marc Scheineson confronted his "mid-life crisis" this past October by committing to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with some of his former law colleagues. The climb was part of a charity challenge to support the Norwood/Hope Center, a school for autistic and learning disabled children in England.

When asked why he summited to the highest point on the African continent, Marc said (with apologies to George Mallory) "Because it was there and that's what Bearcats do."

Marc earned his bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Biology at the University of Cincinnati College of Arts and Sciences in 1977. He went on to receive a Juris Doctorate from UC’s College of Law in 1980. Currently, Marc is a partner and heads the food and drug practice in the Washington, D.C. office of Alston + Bird, a 1,000+ lawyer law firm based in Atlanta, Georgia. For more information on Marc Scheineson, visit his alumni profile here.
